— A New York City man charged with raping two women in Kansas 20 years ago has pleaded no contest in one case and guilty in the other.

Daniel Brewer entered the pleas Friday in Riley County District Court. Judge David Stutzman scheduled sentencing for Sept. 27.

Under the plea agreement, Brewer was released on his own recognizance until the sentencing.

The rapes occurred in Ogden in March and July 1981. Brewer was charged in the first rape, but the case was dropped when the jury failed to reach a verdict. He pleaded guilty Friday to that rape.

Another man, Fort Riley soldier Eddie Lowery, was wrongfully convicted of the second rape and spent 10 years in prison before being cleared by DNA.

Why would a know rapist be released on his own recognizance until the sentencing?

This whole messed up story of Mr. Lowery should be required reading at police academies and prosecutor offices across the nation. His case should bring about laws where if you lie and fabricate evidence and an INNOCENT man goes to prison, the liar and cheat would have to be incarcerated day for day, the time the INNOCENT person served.
